Lets face it a quickdraw is a quickdraw.Yes there are ones with smoother beiners,and there are lighter ones out there,but they all do the same job.These draws are great for beginners,or more experienced climbers that don't want to spend alot of cash.
the best beginner draw around

this is a great draw if you are just starting your sport climbing career. in the beginning it will be a rare time when the extra second it takes to clip them will mean security or a nice long fall. they'll give you a great basis to compare other draws with so you can be a more informed consumer in the future.
decend draw, good price

i like these. cheap price, tough to clip but its what i started out using and as a result can clip any draw with ease
Works in a pinch, but there are other alternatives for the same price

No one will tell you they love the way these clip and feel for good reason. They are heavy and the gates are very prone to attracting grit that makes them clip fairly miserably. I highly recommend waiting and getting a quickdraw set after you've been able to compare several types that way you can actually try them out on the rock.
Instead, if you only have cash enough for these, take a look at the Ace or Faders brand names - they will likely outperform the OP Classic biners on these and be lighter, cheaper and smoother to boot.

This was my first set of quickdraws when I started sport climbing. They are basic, plain, and work well. Nothing has gone wrong with them over time and they are still all I use when sport climbing. I have heliums on dyneema for trad, but that is a different story. These were, and are, a worthwhile purchase. If my set disappeared, I'd buy another to replace them (and not a fancy expensive wiregate set).
